Title: Son of a Lord
Fandom: (That picturebook…)
Characters: F-listMalachai Schade, his dad
Rating: G (L0 N0 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: None
Notes: I've been screwing with this for a month. It still bugs the crap out of me, but a little less so, now. I'm taking suggestions on what's wrong with it, because it's gotten to where I really can't tell, but I know it's not right.

Title: Stolen
Fandom: (That picturebook I'm working on that hasn't got a title, yet)
Characters:Β  F-listMalachai Schade
Rating: M (L0 N3 S0 V2 D0)
Warnings: Rope bondage, evidence of violence, nudity.
Notes: So, there's this part where our protagonist gets kidnapped by Viking raiders. I dunno. I'm tired of looking at it.

Rating: G- (L0 N1 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: Shirtless dude swinging a sword at a hay bale.

I've just spent most of a week trying to wrap my head around British fashion from about 2000 years ago, and yes, I will be doing some half-assed pop-culture interpretation of that, because holy crap, do you have any idea how hard it is to find decent 3D representations of actual historical clothing from an unpopular time and place? Also, woad. Because I like the way it looks. No postwork. There's a couple places where I'm a little unsure about angles and textures, but I think the lighting's pretty good. The whole first part of the book is pretty much going to be overcast or moderately cloudy, because time and place. First person who tells me his name is inappropriate to the time and place is getting told to shut up and buy the fucking book, because seriously, it's ALL EXPLAINED IN THE TEXT. Also, book has no name yet, which will lead to tag headaches, later, and a crippling lack of a master post, for a while.
